Now, welcome to our Challenge Feature for this Week!

Tasha's talent came bubbling to the surface for this challenge!!

 Hello Ai Fans!

It's time for a new Ai release and Challenge!  Today I'm going to share two cards created with the fun new Submarine Cubbies Set!

My first card is an ink-blended slimline card perfect for any occasion.

All the images were stamped with hybrid ink and colored with Copic Markers. This set also includes the coordinating dies making it super easy to cut everything out. I also used stencils to create the scene and mixed waves, sun rays, and bubbles to really give a cool look to the background. 

The second card is a standard A2 sized card and features a yellow submarine and a different mix of sea creatures. This set includes a variety of images, so you can mix and match to really customize your project. 

The best part of the Cubbie sets are the pop-out areas that allow you to add your characters. In both cards, I added a little sea character to each opening and layered them in different ways to again customize my scenes. I could just play with the sets all day!

Lastly, I attached layers to each card and added white gel pen details before adhering them to the card base. 

Thanks for stopping by today and taking a peek at the new Submarine Cubbies Set and be sure to check out the Under the Sea Challenge!

Have a wonderful day!

Thank you Tasha!

How exciting it is to be selected as the winner! I am a huge fan of the cute stamps that are designed by AI and they are always sure to bring smiles to any recipient who receives them. AI knows how to help me create happy mail and paper hugs to the many I have on my card lists. Great designers make instant artists out of people like me. I have already received my new sets that I was rewarded and look forward to the many great cards I can create!
